After relocation to Oklahoma, the resourceful Cherokee discovered buckbrush as a substitute for southeastern rivercane in basket making, with the double-wall style widely practiced. Come explore this technique with an Oklahoma Cherokee Native American. Weave a basket approximately 8 inches in diameter as you learn about the history, natural dyes, and alternate materials. Beginners are welcome.
